Sprinkle of Love Cake
Servings: 9 Active Time 30 mins Total Time 2 hrs

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temp
  • 3 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup (3, 0.26-ounce packages) freeze dried strawberries or raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 8x8-inch layers of chocolate cake
  • 3 tablespoons sprinkles

Make It

1. Using an electric mixer, beat butter in a large bowl until very pale, about 2 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually add confectioner's sugar, beating until fully incorporated. Continue beating on a slow speed for 2 minutes. Add vanilla extract.

2. Using a food processor, pulse freeze dried strawberries or raspberries to a fine powder. Sift over frosting mixture with a fine mesh sieve and discard any seeds. Fold into frosting along with milk.

3. If necessary, trim rounded tops off cakes to make flat layers. Place one cake layer on a serving dish and spread with 1/2 cup frosting. Top with second cake layer, bottom-side up. Use a 1- to 1 1/2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter to stamp out 3 rows of 3 hearts from the top cake layer and carefully remove.

4. Fill a re-sealable bag with remaining frosting and snip off corner. Pipe evenly into stamped-out hearts. Spoon in sprinkles if desired, about 1 tsp. per heart.
